Every Patient Counts
Our patients are at the core of who we are.
After complications from a stroke, Ms. DeBall underwent a craniotomy to relieve the swelling and pressure on her brain. When she transitioned to a Resolute-managed rehabilitation unit in McAllen, Texas, she was on a ventilator and required a feeding tube to receive her nutrition.
During her evaluation, Ms. DeBall struggled to communicate and needed total assistance to sit in her hospital bed. Despite these challenges, Ms. DeBall was motivated to rebuild her life. During every step of her recovery, Ms. DeBall’s family stood by her side and supported her care plan.
With the dedication of our team, Ms. DeBall’s perseverance, and motivation from her loved ones, she accomplished her goals! Ms. DeBall was weaned from the ventilator! In her last physical therapy session before discharging to a skilled nursing facility, Ms. DeBall could get out of bed with minimal assistance and walk 120 feet with help from our Resolute team. Congratulations, Ms. DeBall!
In May, Ms. Cederlind was diagnosed with Guillain Barre Syndrome. She transitioned to Cornerstone Specialty Hospitals Round Rock in June to receive intensive care and prepare for inpatient rehabilitation at Resolute. Upon arrival at Cornerstone, Ms. Cederlind required a tracheostomy tube to support her breathing and a feeding tube to receive her nutrition. She couldn’t perform self-care or mobility activities without maximum assistance from the rehabilitation team. Despite these challenges, Ms. Cederlind was determined to rebuild her life. At Cornerstone, Ms. Cederlind’s condition improved. Her tracheostomy tube was removed, and she gained strength and endurance! After she was medically stabilized and made some functional progress, she was transferred to Resolute Rehabilitation for the next stage in her journey. When she arrived, although still weak, Ms. Cederlind was motivated to achieve her next goal – to return home. Under the guidance of our team, Ms. Cederlind continued to make great strides. Her feeding tube was removed, and she returned to a normal diet. She was able to perform daily living activities independently and walk independently with a cane! As she was discharged from Resolute to return home, the Resolute and Cornerstone team cheered for Ms. Cederlind as she walked down the hallway!
After suffering from respiratory failure and complex abdominal wounds, Ms. Cordova transitioned to a Tucson hospital where Resolute manages rehabilitation services. When she arrived, she was on a ventilator and relied on the Resolute team to move from her hospital bed and walk.
As part of a personalized treatment plan, Ms. Cordova was weaned from the ventilator and enhanced her strength and endurance. She began to transfer from her hospital bed with supervision and take her first steps. As her wounds healed, Ms. Cordova’s mobility began to improve. When preparing for discharge, Ms. Cordova could walk 90 feet using a walker!
With this progress, Ms. Cordova was discharged home, where she will receive home health services. We’re honored to help Ms. Cordova return home to her loved ones.
